Characteristics of Iberian cebo shoulder ham
The berian cebo shoulder ham are obtained from the front legs of Iberian pigs that have been fed with cereals and fodder and have been raised using intensive farming or in nature. Iberico de cebo shoulders are the cheapest alternative to ham, since they are usually smaller and still have all the flavor of the Iberico product that we love so much.
According to the regulation that establishes the quality of the ham according to the color of the seals, in force since the first quarter of 2014, these must be green for field-fed shoulders (from pigs raised in semi- freedom, extensively), or white for the bait shoulders (from pigs raised in intensive farming, with stabled pigs).
Differences with other shoulder hams
The main difference between bait shoulders and acorn-fed shoulder ham is the pig's diet, since the latter is obtained from pigs that have been fed exclusively on acorns and natural grasses, in extensive farming.
The colors of the seals of the bait trowel are different from those of the acorn, to distinguish them in quality. They also vary their curing time, being less in the case of bait popsicles and field bait popsicles.
Cebo shoulder ham, economy and flavor
Although a cebo shoulder does not have the same taste as an acorn-fed shoulder, its quality and its relative low price make it one of the favorites for our customers who want to enjoy a good product, both in their daily diet as for consumption on special occasions. It is also a highly requested shoulder ham for catering and celebrations.
